1970 Warre

Post by AHB » 21:24 Mon 02 Jan 2017

Mature brick red, 60% opaque. Initially reticent on the nose but some time in the glass allowed it to open up a little and reveal gentle toffee and spiced cranberry with a touch of tobacco ash. Gentle and elegant on the palate with ripe fruit that is mature and elegantly spiced. Much softer and less robust than the Graham 1970 shown alongside - gentle, soft and elegant in a very pleasant manner. 92/100. Drunk 27-Sep-16. Decanted 4 hours.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
